The United States plans to evacuate thousands of Americans from Afghanistan over the next few days. President Biden wants the military to focus on getting troops and allies out as safely and quickly as possible.

  • Bryan Clark, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and former special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations, said the United States has the management challenge of getting everyone to the airport, processing them, making sure the right people are on the planes and having a place for them to go.
  • Clark said the operation is one of the largest U.S. military evacuations ever, might take until Aug. 31 and could cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
  • Clark said the lack of troops on the ground in Afghanistan could limit future counterterrorism efforts in the country due to the loss of continuous intelligence gathering.
